Postponed: Kristina Vaughan guest at SpokenWord will be in February

UPDATE: Kristina has lost her voice so her guest spot is postponed. SpokenWord of course will run as usual.

SpokenWord theme – BEGINNINGS

kristina-1Kristina Vaughan is a Parisian songwriter. She learnt classical piano in French conservatoires, honed the craft of singing and songwriting with coach Jessica Saraf (Sanseverino, Calogero) and started giving concerts in 2013, first as a soloist, then in duo and trio setups. Her music is a blend of Anglo-Saxon and European sounds, as she draws inspiration both from her Czech and Italian origins and from important figures of English songwriting (Sinead O’Connor, Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Alanis Morissette, Jeff Buckley, Damien Rice…). In impressionistic tunes reminiscent of broken cliffs, running water and angry skies, the pianist-singer spins yarns about love, hope and engagement with the world, accompanied by cellist-backup singer Marie Potosniak and, successively, drummer Guillaume Valette, beatboxer Skysoul, and drummer Raphaël Meyrier.
